Bookworm scholar of
Soviet history by day, madcap writer and entertainer by night...
and sometimes vice versa.
On the Research Side
I am thrilled to announce that I have begun the first year of my 3-year DPhil (PhD) program in Oxford University's Dept. of Medieval & Modern Languages (Slavonic Sub-Faculty), on a full scholarship from the Clarendon Fund and University College.
With supervision from Profs. Polly Jones and Dan Healey, I will be researching and writing on the professional theaters of the Soviet Gulag.
My partner Liam and I have moved to Oxford and are enjoying life's next big adventure!
